As I was getting used to eating yogurt and realizing that it's tart taste could actually replace my vinegar, I had an epiphany that I would use yogurt as dressing or marinade.

After researching a recipe for yogurt salad dressing, I then saw a yogurt marinade recipe, and I thought of using that on salmon (instead of the popular mayonnaise topping on baked salmon). I marinated the salmon for 30 minutes. I shrugged the sugar off since it would be negligible in the final product and replaced it with coconut crystals . It was very good! It's like marinating in vinegar. I liked the slight kick of the chili powder, and surprisingly liked biting into the bits of ginger. I enjoyed this with salad greens with yogurt dressing.

Then I made a yogurt-lemon salad dressing.

with yogurt dressing
- 1 cup plain whole-milk yogurt
- 1/3 cup chopped fresh Italian parsley
- 1 tsp basil
- 1 tsp chives, snipped
- 1/4 cup EVOO
- 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
- 1 garlic clove, pressed
- Fine sea salt
By this time, I have made 3 batches of this dressing. Perfect replacement for the starch-laden vinegary (not good in fighting Candida) and sugary dressings available in the supermarkets.
